This deeply saturated, high viscosity sweet stout is the best in it’s class. Pours a thick black tar with a rich, sweet, sliky texture upfront. What I really like about it is the hopsy character that comes forth on the finish. The hops try to hang on as the nectar goes down creating this complex texture shift from silky smooth to velvet. I can honestly say I have never experienced such a shift in any other brew. Thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommended.

it is a damn good thing! very fine aroma, something between cofee-fruity and red dessert wine, pretty special! beautiful, balanced flavor, bitterish and sourish with fruit tones, it is like a sip of good cofee, rich aftertaste! my opinion is strongly recomended to try!

Wow. Tasty. Chock full of nuts and fruits. Super deep and complex on every level. This stout has it all. A champagne of stouts. Bravo.

Medium brown head. Clear black colour. Roasty and creamy chocolate aroma with whiskey. Likewise creamy taste. The chocolate notes reappear in the palate. Great beer!

500 ml bottle. Pours clear very dark brown, almost black, with a medium brown head. Roasty spirit aroma with chocolate notes. Rich fruity roasty malty sweet sour with a slightly bitter buzzy chocholate palate. Wonderful!

Totally love this beer. The greatest thing about stouts in my opinion is the fact that you can take a small sip of one and the taste will stay in your mouth for a long time. This stout is no exception. To this day it has to be one of the greatest stouts (if not the best) I have ever had the opportunity to drink.

Stout en version crème, c’est un peu comme le café crème …, d’un niveau abv de 6,5 %. Brassé avec un blend de 5 malts locaux, dont orge et blé. Houblonnage en challenger, fuggles et progress. Rappelons que la source locale qui approvisionne la brasserie date de quelques 700 ans, ceci fait plaisir !! Mon exemplaire était à 5 mois avant sa date. Couleur noir intense, à l’opacité très forte. Mousse en nappage soyeux brun foncé. Arômes de chocolat, café, moka, pointe de cappuccino. 1ère bouche très souple, à la superbe entame café/chocolat/malt torréfié. Arrière-bouche très fine, avec un petit feu de brindilles. 2ème sur un complexe chocolat/café/chicorée. Arrière-bouche avec ganache, fève de cacao. 3ème avec café et chicorée très élégants. Arrière-bouche avec pointe de stracciatella. Longueur avec du tabac brun, écorce de chêne. Jambes huileuses, longues. Levure douce, fine, belle ligne. Alcool bien, il gère les saveurs sur la longueur. Finale aux très grandes nuances. CONCLUSION : la source de 700 ans a produit tout son effet de douceur sur cette bière … Le brasseur a quand même eu la bonne idée d’y ajouter 6,5 % d’abv, ce qui n’est pas monnaie courante en Angleterre, et nous en lui en savons gré .. En plus de cela, le souvenir de "cream" pour les bons blueseux, et nous une totale savoureuse. Un très beau stout, et vive cream ...

D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S. Pours black from the bottle (which looks great). No head. Smells of chocolate. Heavy malts. Long finish. Magnificent!!!
